Just ordered my Novi 1K which will be installed by myself, couple quick questions on prep, I am replacing the plugs, and changing the tranny fluid & filter prior to the install. A local shop is going to burn the chip first from the generic paxton program since he is unable to get me in until mid July for the dyno tune. What I want to know is, how safe will it be to run with the chip for the first month without a tune? I assume it will be rich since I'm sure Paxton doesn't want cars blowing on their tune, Am I correct? also, what other prep would you due? I may throw U-Joints on during the install since I am up in mileage, My motor feels solid, no strange noises, Idles very well for a stang, and pulls a solid 21psi of vaccum at idle, and under load never fluctuates. I would hate not to get to try it out with it being on the car for a month, don't have that kind of willpower.

Sounds like you have a plan. I still wouldnt beat on it too hard until you get tuned.

had a thought, I'll run octane booster & 94 for added safety til the tune. That should at least give some detonation resistance.
